Pastoral (Parish) Council

The St. Paul Pastoral Council is an advisory body to our Pastor. We function in a consultative manner in accordance with the norms established by Bishop Thomas Olmsted. The primary mission of the Council is to advise the Pastor on matters of parish policy and planning. The Pastoral Council meets on the second Monday of each month.


Members of the Council include the Pastor, priests assigned to the parish, deacons, and lay volunteer members who serve three-year terms.
